Apple Censors Oscar Wilde Comic Over Gay Kiss, Realizes How Dumb That Was

A word of advice: If you're submitting a comic adaptation of a classic literary work to the iPad App Store, you'd better prepare for a struggle with Apple's puritan overlords. Not long after the company censored "obscene" images from a comic based on James Joyce's 'Ulysses,' Apple reportedly gave the thumbs down to, arguably, the wittiest writer to ever live. According to Slate, the company...

Spiderman, The Flash and Two Jedi Stop an Aussie Thief. Seriously.

As journalists, it isn't often that we get to report on something so heartwarming and funny-bone tickling as a good deed done perfectly. Instead, we write about horrid celebrity gaffes or new products that you must have, but today... today, readers, we have a treat. This past weekend, comic book stores globally participated in Free Comic Book Day, where, like the name implies, if you visit a...

Dilbert Takes on the Lost iPhone 4G Saga

Scott Adams, the creator of the iconic Dilbert comic strip, recently found himself in a major scheduling dilemma. He desperately wanted to run a strip about the recent Gizmodo-iPhone 4G saga, but his publishing schedule would only allow him to run them on June 18th, at the absolute earliest. Adams, therefore, decided to completely bypass his routine, and published them exclusively on his blog,...

Genius 'Axe Cop' Comic Written by a 5-year-old, Illustrated by Big Bro

What do you get when you combine a 5-year-old's imagination with his 29-year-old brother's design skills? Web comic genius. 'Axe Cop' is a collaborative online comic strip started by kindergartener Malachai Nicolle and his (much) older brother Ethan, an artist and writer living in Los Angeles. As Ethan explains, the idea was hatched from a game that the brothers used to play, involving the elder...

'Batman: Arkham Asylum' Game Scores Guinness Record

So, how do you know if the press loves your video game? Well, one way would be to see if Guinness decides it's the "Most Critically Acclaimed Superhero Game Ever." Such has the case for 'Batman: Arkham Asylum,' released last week on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It's a rather unscientific poll, obviously. Review scores are themselves a problematic and imprecise thing, and aggregating them only...

Cell Phones Boost Saucy Manga Comics Sales in Japan (Among Women)

The manga (Japanese comics) industry in Japan has been in steady decline for the past decade, but it seems an unlikely savior has finally arrived: the cell phone. The New York Times is reporting that direct-to-cell sales of manga have jumped up 43-percent from last year -- a significant jump in and of itself, but even more impressive given the cell phone manga market's typical slow yearly...

Marvel's Stan Lee Googles Himself

Stan Lee, the adorable, nearly senile granddaddy of Marvel Comics, has admitted that, though he isn't a "technical person," he does own an iPhone and does Google himself. At this weekend's Comic Con in San Diego, Lee was promoting his new digital motion comic (read: cheaper than animation, but still fun to watch and read) called 'Time Jumper'. During his roundtable discussion, he spoke...

Marvel Comics' Massively Multiplayer Game a Go, Again

The on-again, off-again saga of a massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) based on the Marvel comics universe continues as a projected release date has been announced.

After three years of waiting, we've now learned from Marvel and its new partner Gazillion...

'Watchmen' Game Coming to iPhone and iPod Touch

Unless you've been living under a rock (or perhaps in Iraq), you've been hearing about the release of a little low-budget indie art film called 'Watchmen.' Based on the twelve-issue comic book by renowned comic writer Alan Moore -- and now available in all-in-one form as a graphic novel - 'Watchmen' is one of the most beloved franchises in all of comic-dom. And today, Warner Brothers announced...

Trouble for Newspapers Spells Trouble for Cartoonists

With newspaper subscriptions continuing to decline, cartoonists are beginning to worry, according to a report in the New York Times. Speaking on the troubles besetting newspapers' print editions, 'Pearls Before Swine' creator Stephan Pastis told the Times, "For a syndicated cartoonist, that's like finally making it to the major leagues and being told the stadiums are all closing, so there's no...
